8 Things Dietitians Wish You Knew



  1. No one will go hungry when working with a dietitian. We are not going to starve you to help you reach your weight loss goal. We know from experience that doesn’t work.

  2. Carbs and gluten are not the enemies (unless you’re a coeliac…but that’s a whole other story).

  3. Protein isn’t just for the gym bunnies. Our heart and lungs are muscles too, we want to keep these muscles strong!

  4. You might have to talk about your feelings. There can be a lot of emotional issues around food. It's not as simple as “here’s a meal plan…now off you go”.

  5. Its not just about weight. Your diet can affect your mood, sleep, risk of disease and general wellbeing.

  6. We don’t like diets. Diets make you miserable, you try, you fail, and you start all over again on Monday.

  7. We want people to enjoy food. Food is not just fuel. It has social, cultural and emotional aspects too.

  8. Finally, we’re not perfect either! But that’s ok because we know that it's our overall eating pattern that counts and don’t beat ourselves up about a few treats here and there.


Thanks for listening
